  • It was a pretty good children's museum. Cafeteria was nice and clean. Overall sections were well maintained and the crew was very kind. But I prefer the Chicago children's museum at the navy pier.
  • First visit with my 27-month-old and we had a great time. She especially loved the water room, the "boat" (airplane) in the outdoor area, and having lots of low spots to sit by windows when she needed a quiet break for a minute. Having little sinks in the bathrooms is great. We spent about 2 hours and could easily have stayed another hour if we didn't have to get home for lunch. It was easy to buy tickets online the night before and then entry was very quick. We'll be back!
